The 2017 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is taking place March 1 to May 29, 2017 this year. We’ve got the full food list, topiary and garden locations, and concert lineup below! Admission to the event is free with your entry into Epcot, although some experiences require a separate fee. These include some seminars and the dining packages.
Two new Outdoor Kitchens are being added to the lineup of 13 booths from last year. The Outdoor Kitchens offer delectable small plates, and flavorful non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages, all centered around flavors of the garden. There will be more than 70 topiaries based on beloved Disney characters this year, including many new for 2017. We’ll also be experiencing new gardens, decorated walkways and flower towers this year. Of course there will be exhibits, seminars, how-to demonstrations as well as new farm-to-table dining experiences (available for an additional cost.) The Garden Rocks Outdoor Concert Series will feature performances from fan-favorite bands, plus an assortment of debuting acts this year.
While the event will be open every day from March 1st to May 29th, keep in mind that the Festival Center will only be open Friday through Sunday. The Festival Center is located in Future World between Mission: SPACE and Universe of Energy. It’s your first stop for festival info, merchandise, special seminars, demonstrations and more. Concerts are only on weekends, so those are the best days to visit if you want to experience everything the festival has to offer!
